Back in early August, a pair of brothers brothers placed a wild $400 four-team futures parlay bet. Those bets were:

  • The Braves to win the National League East
  • The Chiefs to win the Super Bowl
  • The Lightning to win the Stanley Cup
  • The Seattle Storm to win the WNBA title

If all four outcomes come through, that bet would payout over $171K. With just the Chiefs to go, and not feeling totally confident in their shot at victory, the brothers decided to cut their losses. They hedged the  betting slip, sold it to ProSwap for $57K, about one-third of the slip’s value if Kansas City ends up repeating as NFL champs.
